BlackBerry Storm


In about a month, I can get a new phone. I guess I'll stick with Verizon Wireless, so I'm leaning towards the BlackBerry Storm.

Sweet kitties...

Toby knocked Zelda off of the ottoman about 5 minutes later.

HAROLD HOLZER

When I was a youngster and had to write a paper or a report, I would always write about Abe Lincoln. His life and presidency always fascinated me. My parents took me to Ford's Theater and the Lincoln Memorial when I was 12-13. I have seen HAROLD HOLZER | LINCOLN SCHOLAR on several programs recently on C-Span and The History Channel. He's a great authority and his respect for Lincoln in infectious.

He always says things that I wasn't aware of. I watched him on C-Span's Q and A and he shared the most unbelievable fact: Between the time Abraham Lincoln was elected and the time of his inauguration, 7 states had seceded from the US.

Circuit City to close all 16 Atlanta locations

That leaves Best Buy. Fry’s and Microcenter for most customers. For me, it just leaves Fry’s and Microcenter, as I have a lifelong ban on Best Buy, which is going on about 5 years. Circuit City was great. I often bought things online to pick up at the store. It’s where I bought all of the components for my stereo, all of our home theater equipment. I went there yesterday to get a flash drive at a good price, Sorry to say goodbye.

Study: Sex on TV linked to teen pregnancies

I spotted this headline on MSNBC. Apparently, you have to be sitting very, very close to the TV…
